We've all gone through the scenario in our heads. What would you say if you were caught speeding?

The State Patrol shared some of the excuses troopers have heard in a Facebook post Monday -- excuses that perhaps should have had a little more thought put into them.

"My cat is sick"

Unless it's a life or death scenario, it's hard to imagine a trooper give you a break for your sickly cat.

"Speedometer is broken"

This excuse more than likely increases your chances of receiving a speeding ticket.

"Dog just pooped in the backseat"

This just lets a trooper know you took your eyes off the road.

"Sneezed and stepped on the gas too hard"

How long did that sneeze last?

"My car is too fast"

Sure. And you, the driver, have no control over it, right?
